Coach Stacey started running in the 3rd grade.  During this time she also played competitive softball from 3rd to 9th grade.  It was in high school that she had to make a decision between track & field or playing softball for Folsom High, she chose Track.  In High School Stacey was a 400m sprinter, each year qualifying for sections, but coming up just shy of advancing to the California State Meet.  After Folsom High she went to Sierra Junior College.  Her first year she ran the 400 and once again just missed making it to the State Championship.  The next year her coach suggested she do Cross Country to gain some additional endurance to make the move to the 800m.  It was that Track season she advanced to the Junior College State meet and was 9th in the 800m.  With this breakthrough she then transferred to Division I CSU Sacramento with a scholarship in Track and Field.  Stacey continues to be passionate about running competing year round for Fleet Feet Racing Sacramento.
